WELCOME " MEGAN'S FLUTTERBY FUND" SITE has been set up in memory of Megan Bell who died aged 13 years of a life limiting condition. Megan was profoundly disabled and during her lifetime we had to fund raise to obtain lots of specialized equipment and other things such as switches to activate toys and computer. The purchase of musical instruments ,which the children find so exciting and stimulating. Bean bags, mats, lights, mirrors the list is endless. A lot of this equipment to enrich her life was not supplied by the Health Service as they do not fund for lots of these things. We too had help from our local community, friends and wonderful people who helped us do this .

We now have set out to help other families with children like Megan in her memory to have these things through her Fund. Our aim is to raise funds to help special needs and life limited condition children in our local community to be able to have as many of these things that we are able to help towards or purchase for.
Being specialized equipment can cost from as little as £30 for a switch to hundreds of pounds depending on the childs ability, but can make such a difference to the childs everyday quality of life and the joy and achievement it can bring by being independent for those short moments . Fibre Optic lights and musical instruments such as a ocean drum again bring such enjoyment but cost around a £1000 for lights and £80+ for the drum.

A Big Thankyou

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is keeping well and all our children healthy and happy.

This is just to say a big Thankyou to Asda Store Kingsthorpe for the donation to Megan's Flutterby Fund. Also to Karen and Alfie for their support and putting our funds name forward . Bless you

Its been a bit wet and cold this week so lets hope now that we are into March that the weather starts to get a bit kinder. At least the nights are starting to stretch out .

We are hoping to get some gig nights arranged this year as have had some local bands offer help which is wonderful. Nothing better than a good bop on a lovely summer evening.
Will keep you posted  as the dates are arranged and all the other things planned.
